This project is performed in collaborative work between four multinational engineering students, university professors and a local company. The main objective is to create a new urban element that meets the needs of the citizens in terms of service. It can replace the street light with a more efficient light solution and has to be modular. It produces more energy than it spends, and should be easy to maintain. This goal is reached by using existing technologies and assembling them in a smart way. This team is working in the electric and electronic design and by researching similar projects and existing electronic solutions and technologies it has created a way to realize the idea of the Urban Node, and created a prototype. All the electronic components (microcomputer, microcontroller, sensors, etc.) are in different boxes that plug into a rack. This modular design enables easy modifications in the future.
